World Cup: London block of flats flies 300 flags for England

Residents of a block of flats in London have decked out their whole estate with more than 300 England flags to celebrate the World Cup.

LONDON, ENGLAND, UNITED KINGOM (Reuters) – Residents of a block of flats in London have decked out their whole estate with more than 300 England flags to celebrate the World Cup.

The St George’s crosses were hung side-by-side with flags from Colombia, Poland, Spain, Portugal and Morocco to represent the other nationalities living on the Kirby Estate in Bermondsey in east London.

The patriotic makeover was the brainchild of residents Alan Putman, 48, Chris Dowse, 39, and Geraldine Howard, 52, who paid for the flags themselves.

The trio sent letters to all their 120 neighbours on the council estate to confirm that they were happy to take part in the colourful display.
